Team needs-NFC
 
2011 record: 13-3

Biggest need: Pass rush

The Saints called more blitzes than any team in the league; they just rarely got home. In two playoff games, New Orleans was shredded by Alex Smith and Matthew Stafford for 679 yards and six combined passing TDs. 2011 first-round pick Cameron Jordan isn't much of a pass rusher, and Will Smith is declining going on age 31. Shaun Rogers and Aubrayo Franklin didn't work out on the interior. The Saints' defensive line needs a makeover. They're set most everywhere else.

Yep, we're loaded at linebacker.

Franklin and Rogers did exactly what we expected. Stuffed the inside run and consumed double teams that would allow our DE's and Ellis to apply pressure.

The problem was our DE's and more specifically Ellis didn't do much at all.

I expect they'll want Franklin back, and maybe even Rogers too.

Ha! It's so comforting to know we're all set at the LB positions.
